After the ferry we went out to a lunch at Moravelas in Chester. Students all enjoyed themselves and were appropriate.
Students went to new volunteer site to help out in whatever way they could. They helped set up tables, walked around the facility, and met the people who come. It was a wonderful experience and they got ideas for the next time we are going!
